(Missourinet) American companies have been using a variety of incentives to recruit and retain workers. Tyson Foods is handing out 50-Million dollars in year-end bonuses to its employees. The company has several food processing plants in Missouri, including in Concordia, Dexter, Monett, Noel, St. Joseph, Kansas City and Sedalia, employing about 5,600 Missouri workers. Tyson spokesman Derek Burleson says the bonuses in part are a thank you for all those employees who kept coming to work, even during the coronavirus restrictions. . .

Tyson has spent more than 500 million dollars in wage increases and bonuses for frontline workers over the past year.
